Fun, Easy Beach or Pool Hair

You’re going to the beach, or you’re going to be poolside. You know you’re going to be in the water and the sun all day, and you don’t want to fuss with your hair. You’d like to look a little chic, as well. What can you do?

Here are some fun and easy beach and poolside hairstyles. Little fuss is involved, but you’re going to look great. There are a couple of things you need to do first to protect your hair from the hot rays of the sun. You don’t want breakage or hair damage, and you sure don’t want to burn your scalp.

1. Make sure you bring along a hat. A sunburned scalp is no joke, and the skin on your head is tender and easy to burn.

2. Moisturize your hair with a good leave in conditioner with sunscreen or UV protection before you go. Your hair won’t dry out from the long day in the sun, and there will be no damage from UV rays.

3. Don’t forget an elastic band or headband and use it to keep your hair out of your face.

Now that’s settled, on to the hairstyles.

Go natural. Leave your hair in its natural state, no matter the texture. Pull any long pieces back and secure with a headband or elastic band.

Braid or twist the sides. Either pull the braids back or leave them to fall around your face. Both look great and keep the majority of your hair out of your face.

Pull half your hair back. Take the top layer and pull back into a loose ponytail, leaving some ends loose to frame your face. Not too many loose ends, though. Otherwise, it will annoy you by slapping you in the face when you get wet.

Put your hair in a loose ponytail. There’s nothing sexier than a slightly messy do.

A high ponytail looks great. Pair it with a baseball hat for a sporty, sexy do.

The side pony. Pull your hair to one side and secure loosely at the nape of the neck.
